Kivort Steel History

Kivort Steel originated as a scrap metal business based in Warnerville, NY, launched by Abraham Kivort in 1939. Stanley Kivort, Abraham’s son, joined the company and began to sell new steel in addition to scrap, further developing a loyal customer base. Stanley’s son Robert and Mikhail Polishchuk joined the team in 1990. Both became integral in Kivort Steel’s growth and expansion, with Robert taking the leadership reins in 1997.

In order to accommodate the company’s growth, Robert and partner Mikhail purchased a facility in Waterford, NY in 1999, and shifted the company’s focus entirely to new product.
